c) Our Disclosure of Your Information


Due to the existing regulatory environment, we cannot ensure that all of your private communications and other personally identifiable information will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Privacy Policy. By way of example (without limiting and foregoing), we may be forced to disclose information to the government, law enforcement agencies or third parties under certain circumstances, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, or Users may abuse or misuse your information that they collect from our Website. Therefore, although we use industry standard practices to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personally identifiable information or private communications will always remain private.


As a matter of policy, we do not sell or rent any personally identifiable information about you to any third party. However, the following describes some of the ways that your personally identifiable information may be disclosed.


Advertisers. We aggregate (gather up data across all our Users accounts) personally identifiable information and disclose such information in a non-personally identifiable manner to advertisers, and third parties for other marketing and promotional purposes. In these situations we may disclose the name and address of your Institution, however, we do not disclose to these entities any information that could be used to identify you personally. Certain information, such as your name, email address, password, credit card number and bank account number, are never disclosed to marketing advertisers. We may use third-party advertising companies to serve ads on our behalf. These companies may employ cookies and action tags (also known as single pixel gifs or web beacons) to measure advertising effectiveness. Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and action tags is completely anonymous.


Other Institutions. We may disclose the name and address of your Institution to the other educational and training institutions for marketing and promotional purposes.


External Service Providers. There are a number of services from External Service Providers that we utilize to help you use our Website (e.g. listing agents, escrow, authentication, mediation). If you choose to use these optional services, and in the course of doing so, disclose information to the external service providers, and/or grant them permission to collect information about you, then their use of your information is governed by their private policy.


Other Corporate Entities. We share much of our data, including personally identifiable information about you, with our parent, affiliates, subsidiaries and joint ventures that are committed to serving your online needs and related services, throughout the world.

Our parent, affiliates, subsidiaries and joint ventures will follow privacy practices no less protective of all Users than our practices described in this document, to the extent allowed by applicable law. It is possible that DotNet Systems / MyInstitution.Net, its subsidiaries, joint ventures, or any combination of such, could merge with or be acquired by another business entity. Should such a combination occur, you should expect that DotNet Systems / MyInstitution.Net would share some or all of your information in order to continue to provide the service. You will receive notice of such event (to the extent it occurs) and we will require that the new combined entity follow the practices disclosed in this Privacy Policy.


Legal Requests. DotNet Systems / MyInstitution.Net cooperates with law enforcement inquiries, as well as other third parties to enforce laws, such as: intellectual property rights, fraud and other rights. We can (and you authorize us to) disclose any information about you to law enforcement and other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate, in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringements, or other activity that is illegal or may expose us or you to legal liability.

 

 

d) Accessing, Reviewing and Changing Institution Info


Administrator can review or change any information submitted during the registration, except Type of Institution, Level of Institution, security question, and User ID. If you change Administrator's password we keep track of your old password. You can also upload and update the logo and picture of your institution.


Students and Teachers Profiles as well as several kinds of Performance Analysis Reports of the Students, Teachers, Classes, and the Institution can be accessed by the Administrator, Students / Parents, and Teachers according to their specific rights. These Performance Analysis Reports are automatically created and updated based on the Test / Exam results entered by the Administrator, Class Incharges, or the Heads of Departments.


No student has access to the profile, test / exam results, or Performance Analysis Reports of any other student. Likewise, No Teacher has access to the profile, test / exam results, or Performance Analysis Reports of any other teacher. However, Administrator has the access to all the Students and Teacher profiles, test / exam results, and all the Performance Analysis Reports. Administrator can also allow and define the level of access to the Class Incharges / Heads of Departments about Students personal information on their profiles, test / exam results, and Performance Analysis Reports of the students. The Administrator would, however, be fully responsible for allowing and defining this access to the Students Info, and DotNet Systems / MyInstitution.Net shall not be liable for any misuse of such information under any circumstances.


You can De-activate your Institution at anytime you like to disallow access to your Institution Information Management System by anyone other than you. You can Re-activate your Institution again to allow access to your Institution Information Management System to others including teachers, students and the public.


We will retain our files information you have requested to remove in order in some circumstances, such as to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems and enforce our terms and conditions. Further, such prior information is never completely removed from our databases due to technical and legal constraints, including stored ‘back up' systems. Therefore, you should not expect that all of your personally identifiable information will be completely removed from our databases in response to your requests.

 

 

e) Control of Your Password


You are responsible for all actions taken with your User ID and password. Therefore, we do not recommend that you disclose your MyInstitution.Net User ID or password to any third parties. If you choose to share your User ID and password or your information with third parties to provide you additional services, you are responsible for all actions taken with your User ID and password and therefore should review that third party's privacy policy. If you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over the service, and personally identifiable information about you as well as teachers and students of your Institution, and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf. Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately change your password.

 

 

f) Other Information Collectors


Except as otherwise expressly included in this Privacy Policy, this document only addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. To the extent that you disclose your information to other parties, whether they are on our Website or on other websites throughout the Internet, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the information you disclose to them. To the extent that we use third party advertisers, they adhere to their own privacy policies. Since DotNet Systems / MyInstitution.Net does not control the privacy policies of the third parties, you are subject to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others.

 

 

g) Security


DotNet Systems / MyInstitution.Net uses industry standard practices to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal identifiable information. DotNet Systems / MyInstitution.Net treats data as an asset that must be protected against loss and unauthorized access.
